    Pros

    Young, fast paced environment with ample opportunity to learn and grow. Such a great place to own your career, set your parameters and develop a network. Smart people and endless resources.

    Great expense policy. Free meals, parking, mileage, coffee, professional dues, tuition.

    Cons

    The hours can become long, but you can work from anywhere. During busy season some people show up around 9am and work until 9pm, while others work 7-7pm depending on your preference. Of course, your schedule depends on the clients to which you're assigned.

    Pros

    Very professional. Provided training to succeed in job. Career opportunities. Great group to work with and hard-working. Colleagues are helpful with needed information.

    Cons

    Could do more about work / personal life balance. Long working hours are expected. Some departments still work in silos unfortunately.

    Advice to Management

    Sound management. Great customer approach. Great to see collaboration between offices located in different countries. Could do more about work / personal life balance.

    Pros

    At Deloitte, we create unrivalled opportunities for our people to build successful careers that meet their aspirations as well as deliver for our clients. We nurture the talent of the future – volunteering in schools and mentoring promising entrepreneurs, helping grow business leaders who can have a wide impact on UK plc.

    It is through all this and more that we can realise our vision of supporting client success, fostering sustainable economic growth and a more prosperous society.

    Cons

    Incredible amount of office politics due to Partnership model - even more so than Big Corporate. The best analogy I heard was that Deloitte is a shopping mall, and each Partner is a shop-owner, with their own agenda, staff, etc. Sometimes these Partners even compete! If you get a good Partner, you'll love it. If you don't...
    Pay was not competitive when I was there, particularly when you account for the longer hours worked. I had many friends with similar (or lower!) grades who joined corporate doing 9-5 jobs, and they got exactly the same (sometimes higher) salaries for analyst level work.

    Advice to Management

    So in sum, was it a good experience? Yes. It's opened doors and I learned a lot there. But being honest, I am conflicted about whether it was really worth it. And whether I would've learned the same things at the similarly paid but less stressful roles that my classmates took.

  6. Awesome ! Love it !

    Pros

    Good growth, interesting work, some good people but some not so good. Variety of work.

    Cons

    Low pay, low incentive to stay, stress. They don't care about you leaving because there are new people coming. A revolving door of burn and churn. Have to fight to work with what you want to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Make staying worth it, financially

  8. Good environment

    Pros

    Great place to work straight out of university. You learn from bright people and get exposure to senior level managers at various companies.

    Cons

    Lots of extra curricular, non project work that you are expected to do. Some of it is very time consuming, but you are still expected to be 100% billable.

    Advice to Management

    Organize people who aren't staffed to do non-client work.
    Pay employees better so they don't jump ship so eagerly.

    Everything else (compensation, lack of upward or lateral mobility, management lacks transparency during performance reviews, very little recognition when performing well...)

    Listen a bit more to employees concerns
